TQ Latest pics
First of all, I would like to say thanks to all who posted on the other thread on my latest photos.
Recently I have been working on the TQ, its not 100% accurate but it looks ok. There are need for improvments.
Heres the link.

Real cool looking Jake. That throttle is complex and nice wood work. Where and how are the pots going to interact?

Thanks very much.
Well, I dont have the design set in stone yet.
I have some slider pots that Im hoping to fit in, and I am going to try and take apart an old joystick unsolder the rotary pots and swap them for the sliders, I dont even know if that works but Ill try.
As for auto throttle, I do have some old servos from rc planes, its not the connecting to the levers, its the interfacing them that im no use at, I dont know where to start.
I know some people use relays to disconnect the A/T when there is a manual input.
